“multiple students have denounced these claims as false”
This professor denies the claims made against him and, wisely, has recorded every session of his class.

EXCLUSIVE: ‘And if they fire me, I’ll sue for my job,’ prof says amid accusations of racism, sexism
An economics professor at Loyola University New Orleans is currently under fire as numerous bias complaints have been raised against him for supposedly spouting racist, sexist comments “in classes, in [your] writing, and in [your] emails.”
However, multiple students have denounced these claims as false and the professor is now considering legal action.
According to the email, obtained by Campus Reform, Block allegedly used racist and sexist language throughout communication in his course.
The statements in question include “slavery wasn’t bad,” “women make less money because they are lazy or incapable,” “women are paid less because they don’t work as hard, and it’s the same with people of color,” and that the “‘Disability Act’ shouldn’t exist.”
In an email obtained by Campus Reform, Block responded to Singh later that same day requesting copies of the complaints “verbatim” as well as the dates and timestamps of when Block made the comments in question during his lectures.
“I have recorded every session of my course this semester,” Block wrote.
Rachel Hoorman, vice president of marketing and communications at Loyola University New Orleans, explained the complaint and notification process to Campus Reform.
“We have a faculty investigator who gathers evidence related to the student’s complaint and recommends action to the Provost,” Hoorman stated. “The Provost reviews the evidence and recommendation and makes a decision about the action to take. The faculty member is notified of the complaint when it is received, is asked to respond and participate in the investigation and then is notified once there is a result.”
Block, a tenured professor, is denying the validity of the accusations and told Campus Reform he intends to sue if severe action is taken.
“And if they fire me, I’ll sue for my job,” Block said.
